Par conséquent, la construction de l’oléoduc sur les terres du Corps de l’Armée de terre sur la rive ou sous le lac Oahe ne se poursuivra pas pour le moment ».« Ce sont là d’excellentes nouvelles. Les intervenants présents ici au rassemblement de Bismarck ont déclaré que c’était une victoire » explique John Floberg, joint par téléphone alors qu’il participait à un rassemblement sur l’eau potable dans la capitale. « La décision du juge aurait autorisé le Corps de l’Armée de terre à faire avancer le projet mais ce dernier n’est pas obligé de délivrer le permis ».La décision du juge était en réponse au procès intenté par la tribu sioux de Standing Rock qui s’opposait à l’approbation donnée par le Corps of Engineers de l’Armée de terre américaine à l’oléoduc de Dakota Access. Les Sioux de Standing Rock affirment que l’oléoduc traverserait des terres du traité, perturberait des sites sacrés et menacerait l’eau potable pour 8 000 membres qui vivent sur la réserve de la tribu de près d’un million d’hectares située juste au sud de l’endroit où l’oléoduc traverse le fleuve Missouri.Energy Transfer Partners, la société basée à Dallas qui est à l’origine du projet d’oléoduc, rétorque que l’oléoduc est sûr, économique et nécessaire pour transporter le pétrole du Dakota du Nord jusqu’aux marchés et raffineries de l’ensemble du pays. Le 26 juillet, les organismes fédéraux de réglementation ont délivré des permis autorisant l’oléoduc de 3,8 milliards de dollars à traverser quatre États, à savoir le Dakota du Nord, le Dakota du Sud, l’Illinois et l’Iowa.L’autorisation délivrée ce jour là a émue les gens sur le terrain dans le Dakota du Nord.« Le rejet par le juge fédéral de la demande d’injonction de la tribu sioux de Standing Rock visant à stopper la construction de l’oléoduc de Dakota Access, suivi peu après par une déclaration commune des Départements de la Justice, de l’Armée de terre et de l’Intérieur allant dans le même sens, a provoqué chez nous qui sommes solidaires avec Standing Rock une montagne russe d’émotions » explique l’Évêque Michael Smith du Dakota du Nord. « Je suis d’accord avec ce qu’a dit Dave Archambault, le Président de Standing Rock, il y a quelques jours que « c’est le début d’un long processus juridique ». Dans le Diocèse du Dakota du Nord, nous sommes reconnaissants de l’appui que nous avons reçu dans ce combat de la part de toute l’Église épiscopale et nous savons qu’il faudra que cela continue. Nous continuerons à travailler et à prier pour un règlement juste et pacifique de cette situation difficile ».L’Église épiscopale est solidaire d’autres actions en faveur de la justice autochtone et raciale et de la justice environnementale ; les Épiscopaliens de Standing Rock ont été présents aux manifestations depuis le début. Le 8 septembre, Heidi J. Kim, missionnaire de l’Église épiscopale pour la réconciliation raciale et le Révérend Charles A. Wynder Jr., diacre missionnaire de l’Église épiscopale pour la justice sociale et la défense des droits, se sont solidarisés avec les Épiscopaliens, la tribu sioux et des milliers d’autres défenseurs des autochtones, de la justice et de l’environnement sur le site de la mobilisation près de Standing Rock. Aujourd’hui, Heidi Kim et Charles Wynder ont rejoint John Floberg au rassemblement qui a lieu à Bismarck.John Floberg a exprimé ses remerciements, pour le soutien qu’elles ont apporté à l’Église épiscopale, à l’Église anglicane du Canada, l’Église luthérienne évangélique en Amérique, l’Église méthodiste unie et l’Église unie du Christ qui ont toutes soutenues les opposants. (Cliquer ici pour obtenir le guide intitulé Episcopal Advocacy Guide to the Dakota Access Pipeline)« La bataille juridique continue. Les manifestations vont se poursuivre » déclare John Floberg, ajoutant que plus de 200 peuples autochtones se sont également engagés à soutenir la tribu de Standing Rock. « Notre unité continuera et notre détermination à protéger l’eau et les droits du traité de la tribu de Standing Rock demeurent fermes ».L’action des agences fédérales dans la foulée de la décision du juge prouve que Dieu œuvre de manière mystérieuse, déclare le Révérend Brandon Mauai, diacre épiscopal de la Réserve sioux de Standing Rock.« La lutte continue. Cela [l’action des agences fédérales] prouve que nos prières sont entendues, de la manière la plus inattendue » ajoute-t-il. « Nous avons attendu que le juge fédéral se prononce et, lorsqu’il l’a fait, ce n’était pas en notre faveur. Puis le Département de la Justice est intervenu.« Cela montre que Dieu continue d’entendre nos prières, tout comme on pouvait s’y attendre ».Les agences fédérales ont également dit dans leur déclaration que l’affaire de Standing Rock met l’accent sur la nécessité d’avoir de réels débats sur la réforme qui a pour objectif de prendre en compte le point de vue des tribus dans « ce type de projets d’infrastructure ». Et notamment sur une meilleure manière de prendre en compte dans les décisions, les propositions des tribus relatives à la protection des terres et des ressources ainsi qu’aux droits du traité.Les rassemblements et les manifestations vont au delà du Dakota du Nord. Les défenseurs de l’eau potable, les alliés des peuples autochtones et les sympathisants du mouvement No North Dakota Access Pipeline, hashtag #NoDAPL, ont organisé des rassemblements au niveau national. Une journée d’action nationale est prévue pour le mardi 13 septembre.En prévision de la décision du 9 septembre, le Gouverneur du Dakota du Nord Jack Dalrympl avait la veille prévu la Garde nationale pour aider si nécessaire, les responsables locaux des forces de l’ordre à proximité du site de protestation de Standing Rock.Le week-end dernier, la situation a dégénéré en http://www.democracynow.org/2016/9/7/standing_rock_sioux_tribe_s_lawyerviolences lorsqu’il y a eu des affrontements entre les opposants et des agents privés de sécurité engagés par Energy Transfer Partners. Les agents de sécurité ont fait usage de chiens et de gaz poivré à l’encontre des manifestants qui s’étaient réunis pour stopper la construction sur un site funéraire tribal sacré. Quatre agents de sécurité privés et deux chiens de garde ont également été blessés.Le 6 septembre, le Juge Boasberg a accédé à la demande de la tribu de stopper provisoirement la construction sur la partie de l’oléoduc qui traverse le fleuve Missouri mais il a autorisé la construction à avancer sur le segment qui inclut le site funéraire.Certains membres des congrégations épiscopales voisines ont rejoint les lignes de front des manifestations ou ont offert leur soutien aux centaines – et parfois aux milliers – de personnes qui campaient près de là où la société de l’oléoduc avait prévu de démarrer la construction.L’affaire a pris une résonance particulière pour les Épiscopaliens qui soutiennent le peuple Dakota depuis leur exil du Minnesota au cours de la Guerre de 1862 entre les États-Unis et le Dakota. Il y a neuf Églises épiscopales sur la réserve de Standing Rock. Le 5 septembre, les églises ont publié une lettre exprimant leur solidarité avec le peuple sioux.« Nous sommes appelés à être témoins. Nous sommes appelés à être fidèles au sein du peuple que nous servons » est-il dit dans la lettre. « Nous sommes appelés à être des gardiens de l’âme. Au milieu de cette épreuve, nous prions et œuvrons pour la réconciliation ».Le Diocèse du Dakota du Nord a publié une déclaration le mois dernier exprimant son soutien à la tribu sioux de Standing Rock et l’Évêque Primat Michael Curry a suivi avec une déclaration de soutien, définissant l’opposition comme « une action qui allie le combat pour la justice et la réconciliation raciales à la justice climatique et à la sauvegarde de la création de Dieu dont nous sommes les gardiens ».– Lynette Wilson est rédacteur et journaliste de l’Episcopal News Service. – David Paulsen est journaliste indépendant basé à Milwaukee (Wisconsin) et membre de la Trinity Episcopal Church de Wauwatosa.

Photo: REUTERS/Tony Gentile[Episcopal News Service — Rome] Presiding Bishop Michael Curry and more than half of the Anglican Communion primates have travelled to Rome this week to celebrate a historic and significant milestone – 50 years since Pope Paul VI met with Archbishop of Canterbury Michael Ramsey in Rome in 1966. It was the first time an archbishop of Canterbury had met with the Roman Pontiff since the Reformation and Pope Paul presented Ramsey with his episcopal ring as a sign of their friendship and the deepening partnerships between their two churches.Pope Paul VI places his episcopal ring on Archbishop of Canterbury Michael Ramsey’s finger during their 1966 meeting.This week’s events have included an ecumenical vespers service at San Gregorio Magna al Celio in Rome, a site of major significance to the origins of the Church of England, and a private meeting between Pope Francis and the Anglican primates on Oct. 6 at the Apostolic Palace, the pope’s official residence at the Vatican City.The 1966 meeting “was historic because it brought together two churches and two ways of faith in ecumenical unity in a time when we had in many respects been separated from one another,” said Curry, speaking to Episcopal News Service Oct. 5 outside the Gregorian University in Rome where he was attending a colloquium on current relations between the two churches.“We’re here now in celebration of that 50th anniversary, but maybe more importantly to carry on the legacy … that has to do with carrying on the Jesus Movement … together as Roman Catholics and as Anglicans,” he added. “We’re here not simply to celebrate; we’re here to rededicate ourselves and our churches and our communities to the work of Jesus, to following in his footsteps, to make sure that children do not go to bed hungry, to proclaim the good news of Jesus to all creation, to help to make followers of Jesus Christ, and to be a leaven in the world that leavens the whole lump, so that this world looks something less like our nightmare and something more like God’s dream.”The Oct. 5 vespers service brought together Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby and Pope Francis, the combined choirs of Canterbury Cathedral and the Sistine Chapel, Anglican archbishops and bishops, Episcopal bishops (including Curry) and Roman Catholic cardinals, and many other church leaders and ecumenical representatives. The archbishop and the pope each preached a sermon (videos available here), exchanged gifts as an expression of their commitment towards common mission and issued a common declaration saying that they are “undeterred” by the “serious obstacles” to full unity between Anglicans and Roman Catholics.Fifty years earlier, Ramsey and Pope Paul issued their own Common Declaration saying that their meeting “marks a new stage in the development of fraternal relations, based upon Christian charity, and of sincere efforts to remove the causes of conflict and to re-establish unity.”Pope Francis and Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby towards the end of the vespers service on Oct. 6. Photo: Matthew Davies/Episcopal News ServiceVespers on Oct. 5 marked the fourth time in recent history that a pope and an archbishop of Canterbury have worshiped together at San Gregorio. Pope John Paul II prayed at the church with Archbishop Robert Runcie in 1989 and again with Archbishop George Carey in 1996; Pope Benedict and Archbishop Rowan Williams prayed together in 2012.The church is built on the site from which St. Gregory the Great, in the 6th century, sent St. Augustine, first archbishop of Canterbury, along with 30 monks to re-evangelize England. They landed in 597 and are credited with laying the foundations for the renewal of English Christianity.Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby preaches at the ecumenical vespers service at San Gregorio al Celio in Rome. Photo: Matthew Davies/Episcopal News ServiceAt the end of the service, and perhaps turning a new chapter in the relationships between the two churches, the archbishop of Canterbury and the pope commissioned a new phase of IARCCUM – the International Anglican Roman Catholic Commission for Unity and Mission. They blessed and sent forth 19 pairs of Anglican and Roman Catholic bishops to work together in joint mission.Episcopal Diocese of Tennessee Bishop John Bauerschmidt and Roman Catholic Auxiliary Bishop of Baltimore Dennis Madden are among the pairings.Bauerschmidt described the initiative as “a significant ecumenical development. It indicates that the Roman Catholic Church and the churches of the Anglican Communion are resolved to move forward toward unity and mission together despite difficulties.”The paired bishops, he told ENS, “are meant to encourage our churches to realize the life we already share through our common baptism into Jesus Christ, and to practice that life on the local level.”Bauerschmidt serves as co-chair of the Anglican-Roman Catholic dialogue in the U.S. (ARCUSA), which has been meeting regularly since the 1960s, making it the Episcopal Church’s oldest dialogue relationship.The Rev. Margaret Rose, the Episcopal Church’s deputy for ecumenical and interreligious relations who is in Rome for the celebrations, told ENS that the work of ARCUSA, “as with other dialogues … emphasizes the desire to share work in mission and shalom that helps to put both life and work, faith and order in perspective.”But while there is much to be celebrated this week, the relationship between the Anglican Communion and the Roman Catholic Church has been somewhat turbulent since the Reformation of the 16th century, and strained in recent years due to differences concerning women’s ordination and human sexuality. The Vatican’s efforts to offer a spiritual home to former and disaffected Anglicans while enabling them to retain aspects of their liturgy and traditions through what is called a “Personal Ordinariate” has also strained the relationship.Although there are many women serving as bishops in provinces throughout the Anglican Communion – in Australia, Canada, England, New Zealand, Southern Africa and the U.S. – the 19 pairs of bishops commissioned during the vespers service included only men.Diocese of Indianapolis Bishop Catherine Waynick, who participated in the commemorations in Rome, told ENS she believes that “ecumenism is essential to the life of the church, if we are to be faithful. None of us has all the truth, and if we hold ourselves apart from each other we put ourselves in a spiritually dangerous place.”“I am well aware that the decision of provinces in the Anglican Communion to include women in the episcopate has met with rejection by other churches,” Waynick said. “But having entered my twentieth year as bishop of Indianapolis, and having known other women serving in this ministry, I can only say that for other churches to hold themselves apart from the truth and value of our faithful ministry is a mistake.”Waynick, who is a governor of the Anglican Centre in Rome, said that “wearing a collar and purple shirt in Rome draws comment from all sorts and conditions of people — who invariably express the sentiment that it would be a good and faithful thing if the next time bishops are sent out two by two, women are among them!”In any case, Waynick said, “ecumenical dialogue must continue for us to remain faithful to the mind and heart of Jesus — ‘that they all may be one.’”Rose agreed, saying that “in these troubled times, it is heartening to see our churches moving toward unity.”“The visible sign of bishops working together and the exchange of gifts in the vespers service are one aspect of this. The commitment to addressing openly the challenges of our difference is yet another sign of hope. In future gatherings, the inclusion of ordained women among the working partners would offer an opportunity to live into this commitment at an even deeper level.”The week’s celebrations also recognize the 50th anniversary of the Anglican Centre in Rome, established in response to that 1966 meeting as an official presence with an ambassadorial role on behalf of the Anglican Communion in the Eternal City.The Anglican Centre houses an extensive library, serves as an ecumenical meeting place and educational center, and includes the offices of the archbishop of Canterbury’s diplomatic representative to the Vatican, Archbishop David Moxon.“We’ve been here as a place where we can extend the hand of friendship and fellowship to our Roman Catholic sisters and brothers in Rome, and to look the Vatican in the eye, to speak the truth in love and to repair a bridge that has now got a lot of traffic going across it,” Moxon said Oct. 4 addressing a gathering of the American Friends of the Anglican Centre in Rome. He reminded the gathering of the words that Pope Paul VI had spoken to Archbishop Ramsey at the 1966 meeting: “You are repairing a bridge that had long fallen in ruin centuries ago.”Curry told the American Friends that the “mission of the church is to help the human family, with all its variety and all its diversity and all its differences, to find a way to become not simply a disparate community but a human family of God. Dr. Martin Luther King said it this way, ‘we shall either learn to live together as brothers and sisters, or we’ll perish together as fools.’ The choice is ours, chaos or community.”The Episcopal Church has a presence in Rome through St. Paul’s Within the Walls Episcopal Church, which hosts a significant ministry serving the city’s refugees through the Joel Nafuma Refugee Centre. The parish is part of the Convocation of Episcopal Churches in Europe.Curry will visit the refugee center on Oct. 7 and preach at St. Paul’s during Sunday Eucharist on Oct. 9.— Matthew Davies is editor/reporter of the Episcopal News Service.Editor’s note: This story was recast at 2:15 EDT Oct. 6 to include comments from Diocese of Indianapolis Bishop Catherine Waynick. October 7, 2016 at 1:59 pm I thank God for the courageous and heartening stand of the Pontiff, the Archbishop of Canterbury, our Presiding Bishop and Bishop Waynick. “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus,” from St Paul and “that they may all be one,” from St John’s Gospel.

The presence of Bishop Waynick at this event doesn’t hurt. The polity of the Anglican provinces that do ordain women may make an impression on Rome, a sort of living example of how women can function very effectively as ordained clergy, particularly as priests (the big stumbling block for Rome right now). Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Rector Collierville, TN Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Associate Rector Columbus, GA Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Rector Pittsburgh, PA Rector Tampa, FL October 8, 2016 at 7:17 pm April, you are doing the very thing you condemn others of doing. Being judgmental to other people whose interpretation of scripture differs from yours. Using the same tired leftward-leaning accusation of “mostly white men” disenfranchising women, gays, and people of color. Have you ever once attempted to sit down with a person you disagreed with, talk to one another, and try to understand why they believe the way they do, while giving them a chance to see the reasons behind your convictions. This may be a little harder to do than simply looking down on people you disagree with, but it is the Christian thing to do. And you’re right when you say Jesus’ work is not to leave anyone behind. But he also doesn’t want Christians to pass judgement on other Christians. That is His job April, not yours. Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Comments are closed.

The building is small and energy-efficient. In short: Providing meaning for many!Save this picture!© Wolfgang RetterThe existing structure of hand-carved thresholds, pillars, beams, crossbeams, purlins and rafters made from spruce was placed onto a new concrete foundation. Only the threshold and doubling on the lower purlins needed replacing. Structurally, the “old” is carrying the “new”. This “new” structure consists of 2 outer walls (insulated wooden framework), a wooden-beamed ceiling and the roof made from sheets of plywood with on-roof insulation resting on the old roof structure. The remaining thermal insulation is provided by three-layered glass with only few windows and doors that open.Save this picture!© Wolfgang RetterAll surfaces (floors, ceilings, walls) are made from three-layered spruce plates, which were soaped as an only surface treatment.Save this picture!SectionThe building is heated only by a tiled stove which also serves as a stairwell to the upper floor.

Push-Pull House / Cullinan Studio

Cullinan Studio has completed a playfully creative, light-filled, cross-laminated timber (CLT) and brick new-build family home in Amersham, Buckinghamshire.Save this picture!© Jim StephensonThe house is located in a residential area built in the 1930s, known for its Arts and Crafts architecture. The two-storey detached house is redolent of Arts and Crafts architecture in its well-proportioned solid forms, steep roof and palette of sturdy materials. With an exposed spruce CLT structure, the house echoes the Arts and Crafts ethos of simple forms created through truth to materials. However, unlike the Arts and Crafts movement, which denounced industrial processes, Push-Pull House harnesses modern methods of construction with its use of machine-made CLT.Save this picture!© Jim StephensonThe design ruptures the volume of a traditional pitched house, pulling it into three parts and cracking open the roof to pour light into the heart of the home. The architects have pushed and pulled the footprint of the original house to better suit the family, orientating the new house towards the garden, making it a natural extension of their home.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!Section AThe main volume of the house is symmetrical in plan, with an entrance hall and stairwell slicing through the centre. The recessed entrance hall is flanked by two mono-pitched volumes, defined by a brick base of locally-sourced Chiltern brick and lime mortar, topped with black stained vertical timber panels. A sweeping grey clay tile roof completes the materials palette, appearing to float over the high-level eave windows which, in turn, allow views directly from bedrooms into the tree canopy while maintaining privacy.Save this picture!© Jim StephensonThe eastern pitched roof slopes down to an open plan, single-storey volume containing a large ground floor kitchen and living and dining rooms. On the western side of the ground floor there is an accessible bedroom for visiting grandparents and a study and workshop. Beneath the large living area, the architects created a den in the basement for the boys to escape to. The first floor has four corner bedrooms with bathrooms.Save this picture!© Jim StephensonThe home is flooded with daylight from full-height glazing on the ground floor, top lighting from the middle hallway and clerestory windows above the hall. From morning to evening, the family enjoys sunlight sweeping across their home and garden. Cullinan Studio is passionate about reconnecting people with nature as a means to improve our health, wellbeing and creativity, and this house captures the spirit of their values.Save this picture!© Jim StephensonOverlapping voids and double-height spruce walls form a sequence of volumes so the living spaces flow together, making for a fun and sociable home. A storage wall built into the eastern stair displays the family’s books, ornaments and artwork, and mezzanine floors offer spaces for retreat with views back over across larger gathering spaces at the heart of the home. Save this picture!© Jim StephensonCullinan Studio offered its client a bespoke solution which met the family’s sustainability criteria, and ensured the house was tailored so that the family can play out their daily lives as they’ve always wanted: in a spacious, naturally-lit home connected to their leafy, mature garden and surrounded by the warmth of the exposed timber structure.Save this picture!© Jim StephensonProject gallerySee allShow lessFitzroy Terrace House / Taylor KnightsSelected ProjectsNumata Elementary School / Atelier BNKSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/924850/push-pull-house-cullinan-studio Clipboard Engineers HRW Architects: Cullinan Studio Area Area of this architecture project 2018 CopyHouses, Houses Interiors, Sustainability•Amersham, United Kingdom Push-Pull House / Cullinan StudioSave this projectSavePush-Pull House / Cullinan Studio Area:  503 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Sharman Whyte Ltdcenter_img QS: “COPY” “COPY” Services Engineer: Photographs ArchDaily Projects Save this picture!© Jim Stephenson+ 32Curated by Paula Pintos Share Contractor: Structural Engineer: Peter Gittins & Associates Year:  Lead Architects: ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/924850/push-pull-house-cullinan-studio Clipboard Project Management: CopyAbout this officeCullinan StudioOfficeFollowProductsWoodBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsSustainabilityAmershamEnglandUnited KingdomPublished on September 22, 2019Cite: “Push-Pull House / Cullinan Studio” 22 Sep 2019.

Renovated Colby Hall opens with new amenities

first_imgShelby Arnoldhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/shelby-arnold/ Students travel to Arlington for Taylor Swift’s 1989 World Tour Shelby Arnoldhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/shelby-arnold/ The College of Science and Engineering Dean, Phil Hartman, retires after 40 consecutive years printColby Hall, the only all-women’s residence hall on campus for first-year students, has reopened this semester with brand new amenities.The hall opened after being closed for 14 months of construction and has reclaimed its status as an all-women’s hall.“The desired results are to have another beautifully renovated building that has its own unique character,” said Craig Allen, the director of Housing & Residence Life.“University housing decided it was Colby’s turn to be renovated,” Allen said. “The hall has many new amenities that will create an environment that brings students together.”Residents of the all-women’s dormitory will see the biggest changes in the basement. Allen said residents are now calling it the “Colby Cove.”“The basement used to have just laundry,” Allen said. “Now it has laundry, restrooms, study space, a baking section and a lot of social hangout space.”Natural light was a main element in the renovation. The natural lighting is used to brighten the lounges, hallways and study spaces on each floor, Allen said.“We want it to be a place where students feel at home,” Allen said. “The environment itself brings people out and together.”The number of first-year students that requested Colby Hall increased a little bit from the previous year, but not much, Allen said.Around 200 women requested Colby Hall as their preference this year, Allen said.“It is not as popular as it used to be years ago,” Allen said.Despite rumors of Foster Hall being renovated next, Colby Hall is the last dormitory to be renovated.University housing is looking at fraternity and sorority housing next.“Now that Colby is done we are going to move on and do our fraternity and sorority housing because there are no residence halls left to renovate,” Allen said.
